Pokémon Sword and Shield

465 bytes added, 6 March
Pokémon Sword and Shield can connect with [[Pokémon HOME]]. This allows it to store and receive Pokémon from Pokémon HOME, including Pokémon from previous [[generation]]s that were transferred into Pokémon HOME.
Users of HOME can transfer Pokémon freely between other Sword and Shield savefiles on the console, even if the files belong to different profiles. Through the mobile version of HOME, players can trade those Pokémon through the [[Global Trade System|GTS]], not natively featured in Sword and Shield, and the Wonder Box, a feature similar to Sword and Shield's [[Surprise Trade]] and the [[Wonder Trade]] of previous games.
Only Pokémon in the [[List of Pokémon by Galar Pokédex number|Galar Pokédex]] and a select few "foreign" Pokémon can be transferred to Pokémon Sword and Shield. The [[Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass]] will increase the number of Pokémon that can exist in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
